Summer time is dreadfully coming to a close, and although that means less time swimming, more time schooling, and no time to ourselves, it also means new fashion trends!! So it’s really not so bad.
I wanted to make a huge look book for you readers, and although I asked a few people to get involved, I sadly received a lack of participants. Nevertheless, I’m more than happy to present to you the looks I came up with, in collaboration with one of the cutest girls I have ever met.
Autumn (isn’t her name so appropriate for this post?) is an adorable young woman going into her senior year of high school. She’s a cutie, and I really loved working with her. Be ready to see her smile and firey red hair in upcoming posts.
Look at her glowing. She said that she doesn’t usually wear yellow, but decided she wanted to try something new. This dress is absolutely stunning, and can easily transition from work day to fun afternoon.
Her styling skills are inpressive. She paired this bright feminine dress with these super masculine Doc Marten’s, with yellow stitching. A subtle but effective way to bring an outfit together.
Denim is always a staple, but even more so for school this year I think. Wearing a lightweight shirt like this is the perfect way to stay compliant with school dresscodes. Y’all know I love a good button up.
This next one may be my favorite of Autumn’s collection.
She wore the same denim shirt, but in a different way, tucking it into her black jeans. This is the perfect example of why skirts like these are so great for the school season. It’s easy to create different looks using virtually the same pieces.
Aren’t these jeans the cutest? This outfit is so simple, but elegant. Sometimes less is more. Autumn said this outfit was really comfortable, and easy to put together. It’s so easy to see her confidencein this look.
Maroon, maroon, maroon. Is it really Fall without maroon? It just isn’t. Again Autumn shows us the art of simplicity and chic.
The lace and the maroon combination could not scream October any louder. This shirt was made for pumpkin season. Easy to style for back to school because it could be worn as is over pants or a skirt, and layered under a cardigan or jacket.
Last but not least, we have the comfy outfit. Autumn said she chose to do an outfit like this one because you don’t always feel like dressing up everyday. But wait:
A little detail in the back for some extra interest. There’s always a way to cozy but stylish at the same time.
Being comfy and cozy is always a priority during the school year. Leggings, an oversized sweatshirt, and some tennis shoes is the ideal Monday look.
Now, because Autumn is in high school, she is in school longer and more days than I am. She always has to abide by a dress code, which I do not. So my looks have a tad bit more freedom, but overall, I was going for the same things. Comfortable looks I wouldn’t mind sitting around in all day, and wouldn’t be too hard to put together in the morning.
Sweater season is back and y’all know I’m ready. I ventured deep onto the abyss of my closet and found this beautiful pearl.
I paired this soft F21 sweater with my chic H&M shorts. And I also grabbed this book that DEFINITELY read and didn’t just use as a prop.
I’m all about the tucked in look for every season, because I usually go for oversized everything. When it comes to fall, I traditionally wear sweaters, but don’t tuck them in. This year I wanted to try something new. I really like the concept, as you can tell with my next outfit.
4 syllables: Com-fort-a-ble. Easy way to look poor and like a business woman at the same time. Confuse them with your style.
I’m in love with this silhouette. The A line skirt simply can’t be beat, and the soft sweater. This outfit was out of my traditional comfort zone, but once on I felt better than I had all summer. I’m so ready for fall.
Beige and orange are quickly becoming my favorite colors to wear. It was red and black, but now I’m evolving. I see myself in many versions of these colors in the upcoming months.
Next though, may be my favorite of my own outfits.
Maroon, we meet again!!! Simply can’t stray away from maroon. Here, you see me behind the counter at the Jo’s NTCC location. I think I was looking at the rain, and remembering that I left my umbrella in my car.
This picture was taken before the previous one, when I was blissfully happy. This shirt, you’ve seen before in my 2020Ave haul. I’ve mentioned that haul like 20000 times, so you KNOW their products are soo good.
I tied this shirt into a rose knot just to add a little flavor. I like to do this when the outfit just needs something extra, and the shirt is long enough. It’s also a good way to create a cropped silhouette without cutting the shirt or tucking it in (because you don’t want to do that everyday like I tend to).
And these pants are actually maternity pants. Can you believe that? Thank the Gods of thrifting for this find. These little cargo Capri pants have saved my life on multiple occasions. Get yourself a pair for those cold classrooms, but lingering hot days.
That’s it this week folks. I know it’s pretty late, but finding help for this post put me in the gutter more times than not. I hope some of these looks inspire you this season. Have fun! Peace,
